I was a little perplexed by this when I first started with Python, too.  I
wanted to print without the newline and without a space before the next item
(which you get when you put a comma at the end of the print statement).
The trick is to use sys.stdout.write(), which gives you the fine-grained
control you may be more accustomed to with printf or the like.
